I'm not sure if this is the same rocker, but my dson was rocking his infant and the chair suddenly went backward. My dson managed to brace himself and the baby, so there were no serious injuries, but it scared him to death, thinking of what could have happened to the baby. He notified Wal-Mart, but I don't think they offered him a refund or anything. Of course, they claimed no responsibilty.

Dixie,

That's terrible. Does he have the model numbers? This goes back to 2004.

The recall involves three models of rocking chairs, the Mainstays Love Seat Rocker (model IT-13380) and the Mainstays Porch Rockers (models IT-13379 and IT-13270). The love seats are wooden and white and seat two people. The wooden porch rocker is sold in white and light brown and seats one person. The model number is printed on the rocker's packaging.

The rockers were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide and on Wal-Mart's Web site. The love seats were sold from May 2004 through September 2005 for about $100. The porch rockers were sold from April 2004 through March 2006 for about $50.

I'm not sure if he has the number. The rocker not only tipped over backward, but fell to pieces,too. :(
